After offering a view of the detent escapement, constant force mechanism, hammers, and gongs, there isn't much left of an actual dial on the Bulgari L'Ammiraglio del Tempo's face. Though there is just enough of one to make you realize this is in fact a watch even if the dial on the Bulgari L'Ammiraglio del Tempo looks like an horological version of the Phantom of the Opera's mask. I won't even comment much on the too-short hands, which aren't particularly legible. Let's just say, people who wear the Bulgari L'Ammiraglio del Tempo watch probably aren't doing so for an at-a-glance-readable timepiece.

Let's further be clear that both watches are limited editions, and that the difference in naming is pretty confusing for what is essentially the same watch. Having said that, let's take a look at this new Porsche Design watch itself. Porsche design has a long history with both black PVD-coating processes as well as using titanium as a watch case material. I believe Porsche Design was the first to use PVD (physical vapor deposition) on a production wrist watch. That was in the early 1970s, and it was a big deal because, for the first time, you could have a black-colored metal watch case that wasn't merely painted.

Roshan Martin is a new name to the luxury watch world but the quality of the design is solid. Of course, the prices for the Roshan Martin Légende Tourbillon are... well, "legendary," and the company only needs to find a few buyers to begin. On top of that, I will remind people who know anything about Swiss prices, that they don't stop at consumer goods. Services, especially when it comes to the watch industry, are extraordinarily expensive in watchmaking country.

The watch dial has applied hour markers and hands which are both painted in a lot of lume (Seiko's own LumiBrite material). I like that despite the different materials, the hands and hour markers are white against the blue face - which just looks very nice. Around the dial is a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms-style rotating diver's bezel, and the steel case is 44.5mm wide, but wears smaller given its really thin profile. For the money the case finishing is wonderful, and combines polished and brushed surfaces. It was so nice, that the lack of Seiko logo or signature on the crown was a glaring omission - but not a deal breaker.

Kevin also discovered a concept that I have discussed for a few years now, and that is that timepieces are not trying to be the next big thing because they are, in fact, one of the "last big things." As major horological developments are mostly a thing of the past, there is little worry that your next luxury watch will become any more obsolete than it was when you bought it. We purchase timepieces for their quality and craftsmanship. Rose jovially explains that when one of his colleagues becomes curious about his fascination with expensive watches, he simply shows them the case back of his A. Lange & Sohne or F.P. Journe watch and leaves it at that.

While I quite like black watches (that are nevertheless legible), they are for a very specific type of customer. The issue is that black coatings, especially matte black coatings create a subdued and stealthy appearance. It not only makes the watch itself stands out less (in some contexts), but the details of the case itself are much more difficult to see when compared to polished steel (for example) finishes. Matte black is also particularly good at absorbing light, so the lack of reflectivity can erode a "high-end look" that many people crave in a luxury watch.

The bead-blasted case finish is excellent. You don't get that many bead-blasted watches these days, but I love them. Finishing on the steel case is soft to the touch, doesn't pick up finger prints very well, and also gives the watch a gray-colored, serious tool watch feel. In the images, you might notice a few discolored squares. Those are merely where some protective stickers were placed when the watch shipped. I left a sticker on the side of the case for a few of the shots, so you'll know what I am talking about. Those areas have since easily cleaned off.

Replica Breitling Chronomat

The Porsche Design Timepiece Number 1 and Porsche Design Chronograph Titanium Limited edition each feature 42mm wide titanium cases, with the former being PVD-black coated. Each is offered in a bead-blasted finish with gives them a neat looking industrial "tool watch" feel. With just 50 meters of water resistance these aren't super sport watches, but I have a feeling that number will get better in the future. There is a sapphire crystal over the caseback with a view of the movement as well as an AR-coated crystal (coated on both sides) over the dial. Note that the rear crystal is tinted black to give the movement a dark looking finish.

The watch is presented on a matching blue satin strap, accentuating the dial colors. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vouz Ivy Minute Repeater is my ideal women's watch: cutting-edge complications, stunning elegance, and quite a moody motif (think biting cold wind beneath a moonless night-blue sky blowing without compassion on snow dusted ivy leaves). It is a timepiece that has it all. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater will be limited to 88 pieces – a relateively large number for such a highly complicated and arguably niche offering – with the price coming in at around 0,000jaeger-lecoultre.com

Obviously, for a watch with this level of craftsmanship, technology, and outright ornamentation, the price is going to be a supremely limiting factor. Watches like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication are the treasures that JLC creates for the most faithful, crazed and well-heeled collectors. If you fit that profile and have the spare finances, then what you get in return is nothing short of Jaeger-LeCoultre's definition of romantic haute-horololgy. We will update with price information as it becomes available from Jaeger-LeCoultre. jaeger-lecoultre.com

I last left off with the new 2014 Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection with a hands-on article here. You can see how the 2014 models feature a Monaco Historique three-hand model (Automatic), power reserve (Power Control), and this Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chronograph. Each shares a titanium case construction, as well as the fresh looking black and yellow "bumble bee" color scheme. I knew about the collection a few months before their Baselworld 2014 launch, but it wasn't until I got some hands-on time with the pieces did they really capture my affection.

If you are a fan of quirky timepieces, the name Devon is probably no stranger to you. If not, the company is most famous for its Tread 1 electro-mechanical watch. Even though the Tread 1 has been around for about five years now, it is still one of the most visually interesting and exciting watches around. However, it is also very big and pricey. The Tread 2 addresses those problems by being much more wearable and affordable, and thus is much more attractive proposition to watch enthusiasts. Here’s our in-depth review of Devon’s new Tread 2 Shining watch.

This year at SIHH 2014, IWC revealed their refreshed Aquatimer collection which, as the name suggests, is IWC’s line of dive watches. One of the more complicated pieces is the Aquatimer Deep Three Depth Gauge because, you guessed it, it features a mechanical depth gauge that measures up to 50 meters. But that is not all, the depth gauge features indicators that show both maximum depth and current depth. This is arguably the hottest watch to have this year for the well-heeled diving enthusiast.

ABTW: Do you serve mostly locals or tourists, or is it a good mix? Also, what percentage of your customers would you call "knowledgeable watch collectors?"
